Boosterrific.com: The Complete, Annotated Adventures of Booster Gold

It has been 385 Days since Booster Gold last appeared in a DCnU comic book.

 New Release: Blue Beetle Rebirth #1

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Blue Beetle: Rebirth #1 is out today. It features the return of Ted Kord as the mentor to Jaime Reyes. You can find two previews online at comicbookresources.com and majorspoilers.com.

On a related note, DC Comics released solicitations for comics shipping in November earlier this week. As has become the norm, Booster Gold was nowhere in sight.

Could a future issue of Blue Beetle be where we'll next see our hero? Given that the series is written by Keith Giffen, it seems a possibility. Consider picking up this issue and getting in on the ground floor.

The now familiar Chris Batista art of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold running away from an angry mob (as seen in Booster Gold #34) will soon be available as a pair of vinyl decals from Elephant Gun.

Just like the Dynomighty wallet that used the same art, the stickers are a Previews Exclusive available only to comic shops. They'll be available this October with a $6.00 suggested retail price. Remember, if you want it, you'll need to remind your Local Comic Shop to order it!

 Klein Strikes Gold in the DC Comics Offices

Friday, August 19, 2016

For the purposes of this website, Todd Klein is known as the man who created the original Booster Gold title logo. In addition to being a great letterer — he's perhaps best known for his work on Neil Gaiman's Sandman — Klein is also a comics fan and historian.

Over on his blog, kleinletters.com, Klein's latest history project involves the 1980s occupants of the DC Comics offices at 666 5th Avenue, New York. This was the time period that Booster Gold was born, and our hero makes an occasional cameo appearance as Klein discusses many of the editors staff artists involved in the production of comics of the era.

In the photo above, you'll see Booster Gold #25 on the shelf behind DC editor Barbara Kesel. Other photos in the 6-part article identify the offices of Booster Gold editors Janice Race and Alan Gold. You'll even find a pic of young Dan Jurgens with his fellow Superman writers.

If you have any interest in the history of DC Comics, you'll find the whole article at kleinletters.com.
